Notes:
"It is interesting to know that despite the substantial mintages of the branch mints, very few nice certified AU pieces are available. Putting together a set of certified "sliders" is an almost impossible chore."

"The 1906-P&S come well struck, the 1906-O typically soft."1

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 4 MS-67's.
